That was my exact question. Does Bamboo support some kind of proxy
mechanism so I can go around my firewall restrictions which have the
ports 5850-5853 *definitely blocked*. I am looking for a solution to the
problem of accessing openDHT from behind a firewall which has those
ports blocked. There are other java APIs which support proxies to
overcome this problem (see the code snippet from my first email) - does
Bamboo support this? if not then Bamboo is virtually unusable from
behind firewalls which have those ports blocked - as most firewalls do.
